Time to stock up on some coloring essentials
It is a great time to stock up on some coloring essentials or maybe see if you can pick up some of those premium coloring items at a bargain price!
High quality alcohol based markers like Copics or some artist brush pens from Faber-Castell are worth a look. At regular prices these pens are way out of reach for most casual coloring fans to justify spending cash on, but on a day like Black Friday it is always worth checking Amazon or your local craft superstore to see if there is a discount which brings these pens within the reach of us mere mortals! 🙂 Here are some great tips on using pens for coloring.
Copics and brush pens can give a real smooth color layer and Copics especially allow some beautiful blending, but for some designs you may find the line weight of these types of pen to be too broad.
For that reason it is also worth checking out Staedtler fineliner pens, not only are these much more affordable than the Copics and brush pens of the world but they allow great control on detailed designs like mandalas.
If pens aren’t your tool of choice, keep an eye out for discounted Prismacolor pencil sets. These pencils are often used by professional artists. You can get an idea of the great results you can achieve with these pencils in our in-depth article.
For a less expensive brand of pencil, that still offers some nice blending capability and feels really good to hold I would recommend checking out the Staedtler Ergosoft coloring pencils. With their triangular shape they don’t roll off the table and shatter their leads like traditional round pencils can.
